The Weekly: Top News & Releases

The Week of June 24, 2013

The weekend is finally here! Time to recap some important news buzzing around the game industry.

  • Podcast #321 is up! Go have yourselves a listen as the crew discusses The Last of Us, Remember Me, and share their thoughts on Microsoft's DRM reversal.

  • Creator Luke Miller is not sorry about his 'gay-themed' adventure game, nor should he be, and talks about a potential sequel.

  • I'm actually surprised it took this long, but someone made a game about my city's mayor Rob Ford and his crack-smoking scandal. If you haven't heard about the scandal or this man, please utilize Google for this special quest. I assure you the .gifs alone are worth it.

  • Over at Gameranx, Jenn Frank shares useful tips on how to be a freelance game journalist. Pro-tip from yours truly: don't do it. Be a writer and contribute to games writing until you can secure a gig, but focusing on just being a games writer is too limiting and not rewarding enough.

  • Joel Newman of Playing the Canon wrote an excellent article on the highly influential Dragon Quest (1986). I personally love nostalgic pieces like this one.

  • Rumour has it that the next contender in the game console war is Google?

  • This week there is a great profile at Kotaku on Sid Meier and how he became "The Father of Civilization."

  • Kenneth McCulloch of Precursor Games has been charged with the possession of child pornography. CEO Paul Caporicci confirmed that McCulloch is no longer associated with the studio in any way.

  • Ellen Page made a dig at the uncanny resemblance between her and Ellie, Boston's subway map designer was furious over the implication of his work and now a real phone sex hotline number appears in The Last of Us. Naughty Dog knows that video games aren't actually real life, right?

  • Did you pick up Hotline Miami this week on PSN? Or the new Deadpool game? Share in the comments below!
That wraps it up for this week. Have a great Canada Day & Independence Day, you nerds! If a game-related event occurs during the week and you think it deserves a mention, then please contact me and let me know.

    We should have a game about our city counselors and how retarded they are to go along with the Ford game. Maybe even a David Miller to remember another shit past.

    Wtf the bit about the Precursor game employee really threw me off but then again he would still probably go to jail for the shit Denis Dyack pulled with the previous studio.

    Google going into making consoles? Interesting I will wait to see if rumour is true before I elaborate my opinions on it.
